Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.

My first yoga class was about 17 years ago in a trailer classroom at our local public school. I was recovering from a herniated disk that left me barely able to walk. I was the grateful student of a kind and supportive teacher who guided me back to health through breath and posture. Through yoga practice, I discovered a way to approach both physical and spiritual life that could sustain me. Inspired to share this practice with others, I earned my 200 hour teaching certificate in 2008 with Rolf Gates.
Additionally, I am a Reiki 2 Practitioner and offer sessions in my home treatment space. Reiki treatments can be effective in reducing the effects of stress and anxiety while assisting the body in its natural ability to heal itself through this gentle hands on technique.
I enjoy teaching an informed Vinyasa/Hatha style of yoga with emphasis on breath, alignment, and joy in movement. My teaching is continually inspired by the teachers who teach me, whether weekly in person or monthly in an on-line training. It is my hope that students experience a practice which becomes an expression for how they want to live, that what feels good in practice manifests in their lives.
Through patience and compassion students will find, for themselves, all that is required for practice is their basic human ability to pay attention and to care.
